Capt. Jason Conroy, USA, is now stationed with the Army's Space and Missile Command in Huntsville, Alabama. Ron Martz writes on defense issues for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. His books include Solitary Survivor: The First American POW in Southeast Asia (with Lawrence R. Bailey, Jr.; Brassey's, Inc., 1995) and White Tigers: My Secret War in North Korea (with Ben Malcom; Brassey's, Inc., 1996), which Publishers Weekly praised as "exciting reading." He lives in Roswell, Georgia.
